Kite

High performance SLE C-kite with allround characteristics

Designers goals (manufacturer text)

For riders who are looking for an extra kick in their riding, the ALL-new Varial X takes the lead as the highest performing all-around kite in the Airush range. A fully redesigned 3 strut SL-C, the Varial X combines the low-end power and stability of the Wave, with the premium performance of the Razor Team, to give you the best combination of free-ride, wave riding, and wake-style in a 4 line set up.
The flatter wing tips on the Varial X take the inspiration of the Razor Team and Wave allowing for more of a C-kite feel, response and direct steering that these riders have grown to love.
Moderate bar pressure on the new Varial X makes it extremely easy for riders to feel the kite at every turn.  Taking inspiration from the Razor Team, the Varial X has a fine foil, which means that upwind ability and popping are just as good. This is optimal for an everyday, freestyle enthusiast looking for a wake-style preforming kite in a 4 line, bridled design
The Varial X works best with the Smartbar 5 or Analog Bar.
